I’ve read through the entries from the Carnival of Beauty at Two Talent Living, and they’re all fantastic. But one really connected with me. I hope you’ll have a chance to read Today’s Song from the blog, Holy Experience. Here’s a mom who took her children to sing in a hospital’s “Faith Service for the elderly.” Ann writes:

In a room ringed with wheelchairs, the children and I were encircled — embraced — with age and years and lives lived. And now the elderly pressed close to us, to reach out and touch the times now past, and the youngsters, and the youthful beginning of Life’s journey.

She describes an experience, then she continues her beautiful prose:

So, for the here and now, bring on the diapers and the laundry and the noise and the toy-strewn rooms! Let my conversations be interrupted, my nights sleepless, and my dishes endless!

For, these ARE the days — the preciously fleeting days. These are the days of sleeping (momentarily) swaddled babies, of supersonic toddlers unfurling toilet paper rolls, of boys and torn-out knees and riotous trampolines.

And in the blink of any eye, I will be whispering, like Job — “Oh, for the days when my children were around me.” ~Job 29:4

Don’t read it here — go read it in Ann’s Holy Experience blog. She’s given me a glimpse of such timeless beauty and joy, all I can say is “Wow.”
